Laura Whitmore and Emily Atack have been confirmed to join the panel of ITV’s Celebrity Juice.

It comes weeks after Holly Willoughby announced she was stepping down from the panel show after 12 years.

Laura and Emily will join Keith Lemon on the show when it returns this autumn.

An ITV source told The Sun: “The show definitely needed a bit of a shake-up and bosses hope Emily and Laura can do that.”

Holly quit Celebrity Juice

“It’s one of ITV’s biggest brands and there’s still lots of fun to be had with it.

“Keith can’t wait to ­initiate the new team captains into the show and there are plenty of surprises lined up for viewers.”

Laura was hotly tipped to replace Holly on the show, with a source previously telling The Mirror: “Laura has been a familiar ITV face for over a decade now and she is perfect to retain the show’s younger audience.

“Laura also gets on with Keith, which is important, and she has taken part on Celebrity Juice in the past.”

The news comes after Laura was spotted filming Shopping With Keith Lemon earlier this week, which sees Keith hit the shops while he interviews his guests.

The comedian shared a video along with the Irish star on Instagram, captioned: “Been filming Shopping series 2 today with me pal the lovely @thewhitmore.”

“She taught me a bit of Irish, we did yoga, we flew a kite, we had a drink, laughed and got a wasp in our sorbet,” he added.
